My 9 year old son, Jesse, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on Wednesday. He has always been a very healthy boy so this has really caught him, and us, a bit by surprise. My husband was diagnosed with Type 1 when he was 11 years old, but having a child of my own with it is not the same. The entire medical team at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, from the ER check in clerk to the Endocrinologist Team we were assigned were wonderful! They took us through a huge amount of educational and nutritional training and got Jesse out of the hospital and sleeping at home within 36 hours from the time we walked into the ER. We are so information rich right now we’re dizzy.
Thank you for all you do to bring awareness to the world about this non-discriminating disease. It is great to have someone like you who is not afraid to share your experiences in order to help others.
